Hi Everyone,

It's a pleasure to be a new member on this fantastic forum. Three cheers for open communication, freedom of expression, links, email and a friendly, respectful administrator. Thanks, Joe!

I recognize many of you from another place and see that we are gathering here. I was wondering where all the interesting posters went


Sylphide and I are looking forward to conversations with you all.

Best Wishes,

--N and S

Oh, I see you found the Gallery... great!! I don't recall your having two Malts... did you get another one or does someone else own her sister?

Thanks for the warm welcome, Kallie/Catcher's Mom and Buttercloud and Noriko!

Sylphide was born August 28, 2003 and is now just over 15 months old.

My husband and I are both dancers (although I am now retired from performance and direction), with my husband being a former professional classical ballet dancer and now a ballet master.

Sylphide (pronounced Silfeed) comes from two romantic ballets. The Sylphide is a mythical winged creature of the air. Ballerinas dancing the part of the Sylphide always wear fluffy, delicate white tutus. We felt this would be very appropriate for a lovely little Maltese.

We live in a ballet town (New York City ballet has their summer season here)…so a lot of people get the connection when they hear her name, although many think we are saying Sophie.

This summer while visiting Mexico City, we met a fellow Maltese lover smuggling her furbabies into the movie theater under a receiving blanket. She, too, had furbabies with ballet names: Nureyev and Fonteyn. She turned to her husband and exclaimed: "See, I'm not the only nut around!" :D

Hi, I didn't realize you were a former ballerina! I love the ballet... took lessons most of my childhood and then again in High School and again in my early 20s. Saw Nureyev on stage in NYC in the early 70s... what a thrill......

Actually, I'm not a ballerina--My husband is the ballet dancer in the family. I do love ballet, though.

I specialize in non-western traditions, mainly Tahitian and Mexican Folkloric Traditions, but also world dance in general (and dance anthropology). I have studied and teach western dance history and theory, etc., but always performed, choreographed, and directed multicultural performances.

Oh, and I don't have Sylphide's sister (I wish I did -- I want another Malt!). That photo was taken when Sylphide was still with her litter, about a week or so before she came home with us.

I'm still looking for the really cute photo of Sylphide that you mentioned, the one I took when she was 16 weeks old, with her first bow. It might be stored on my work computer...

I love having two...... Everything each one does is twice as cute when both do it at the same time.... And their personalities are very different from each other's and that makes it especially fun...... and I enjoy have both a girl and a boy.... I'm in Maltese heaven!! :D
